Blessed of Ganga
The Maha Kumbh Mela is believed to be the single largest religious gathering in the world. It’s a sacred pilgrimage celebrated every twelve years. In 2013 it has taken place in Allahabad, in the confluence of the rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati. Millions of hindu devotees, sadhus and sadhvis of all the akharas, gathered to perform a purification ritual in the holy waters of the Ganges , bathing and drinking the water, oblivious to the high level of pollution.
